Default Albatros, You just can't mod just 1

Yes, there are inaccuracies in the scheme, thank god its not going to top gun. Yet another $79 airplane with a little elbow grease.

This one's my favorite! So do you get these free by the dozen?

Stunning..................... [8D]

I have very great respect for you and your very small models with all that detail.

Very impressive Cocobear !

I just picked up one at the out of town LHS, just waiting for the weather to cooperate for its maiden flight. How did you create the lozenge pattern on the wings ? And is your Flyzone Albatros all stock ? or did you change/upgrade to a different motor & battery ?

Thanks for some great work & inspiration.

I'm jealous now !

Saw this airplane in person yesterday. Even better than in the pictures. It even has the radiator pipes going from the engine to the wing. Very cool.

Good evening, DJ

I'll echo everyone else's compliments on your latest efforts - it looks fabulous.

I've been following the mod threads over on the other forum (the RC Group guys), and will be trying my hand at this mod myself - I've gone ahead and acquired a spare fuselage, wings, tailfeathers and propeller(s), and am going to take a crack at Baumer's Edelweis version later this winter - gotta have to quit living out of a suitcase for work first, so I probably won't get a shot until January. But I am looking forward to the task!!

Best regards,

Lee McD
